Welcome to Motion Analysis and Cognition Laboratory

The Motion Analysis and Cognition Laboratory, one of the basic research groups of KUTTAM, aims to identify, examine, monitor and improve these functions, which are known to be influenced by different groups of patients, by using technologies and approaches that can be described in detail and efficiently with the human cognitive system and mobility.

For this purpose, the health of the basic components of the cognition such as attention, memory, decision making, learning and perception are described numerically and the brain stimulation (transcranial direct current stimulation, transcranial magnetic stimulation) and with the use of the neuroimaging tools in Koç University Hospital, the neural sources of differences that can be observed between individual / patient groups can be determined. In addition to the cognitive outputs, the Movement Analysis laboratory can quantitatively evaluate and quantify the body posture, walking, posture, balance and movement parameters through electromyography (EMG), three-dimensional motion analysis system and biomedical sensors. This technologically advanced setup allows examination of motion analysis for all types of central nervous system not only for physical rehabilitation studies, but also musculoskeletal system disorders in pediatric and adult populations.

Researchers working in the related field, as well as medical and sports professionals, are committed to adding more evidence-based analytical technology to their daily work. At this point, KUTTAM offers you the highest technology in this field. Noraxon’s MyOmetRICS ™ Portable Lab is the world’s first biomechanical research lab, providing high quality biomechanical data acquisition, processing and analysis. You can monitor and analyze human motion everywhere and at any time. Areas using Noraxon technology can be summarized as follows;
